Stay Safe at Home and Compliant With Stay-At-Home Orders

Boulder, Denver, and numerous cities throughout Colorado have implemented stay-at-home orders and other restrictions to help stop the spread of COVID-19 throughout the state. In Boulder, these restrictions will be enforced, and it is crucial to stay abreast of the news. There is the possibility that the stay-at-home orders will be amended if the number of people infected with the virus in Colorado continues to rise.

Here is what you need to know about the COVID-19 quarantine restrictions in Boulder:

  • Stay at home. Only leave your home for essential activities. These include going to work, the doctor, and the grocery store. Individuals are allowed to travel to care for elderly family members and other dependents and to educational facilities to provide distance learning services.
  • Avoid public gatherings. All public and private gatherings are prohibited by the order.
  • Public transit systems are still operational. However, when using RTD or other public transit systems, individuals are required to maintain at least 6-feet of social distancing.
  • The public can enjoy outdoor activities in public areas that have not closed. Walking, biking, running, etc. are not prohibited. However, individuals must maintain a safe social distance from one another.
  • Most playgrounds, golf courses, picnic areas, etc. are closed. Individuals can be charged with trespassing and violating the quarantine order if they attempt to access these facilities during the closure.
  • Businesses not considered essential are required to close their doors to the public. However, business operators are still allowed to provide support via telephone/email, ship products, and provide essential services, such as plumbing or electrical services. Business owners should verify that their business falls within the established categories and proceed according to the state’s requirements for operations during this period.

This is a difficult time for Coloradans, and public health depends on individuals complying with these restrictions. Individuals and business owners who fail to comply can face fines for failure to isolate/quarantine. Of course, fines are not the goal; the goal is to keep our community healthy, and right now, that means we all need to do our part.

If you have questions about the quarantine/isolation orders in place for Denver, Boulder, and other areas along the Front Range, contact a Boulder personal injury lawyer at Sloat, Nicholson and Hoover, P.C. at (303) 447-1144.
